Rishi Sunak and US vice president Kamala Harris have reaffirmed their support for Ukraine and the Western alliance at the Munich Security Conference in Germany today.
Mr Sunak told the conference it was ‘time to double down’ on support for Ukraine by providing more artillery, armoured vehicles and air defence.
The Prime Minister met with German Chancellor Olaf Sholz this morning as leaders discussed further support to help the war-torn country battle Vladimir Putin’s invasion.
Mr Sunak used the meeting to press home the need for Western allies to think ‘about strengthening Ukraine’s long-term defences’, according to No 10.
He also emphasised the need for Ukraine to defeat Russia to bring an end to the conflict and called for a ‘new framework’ to ensure its security in a speech to the conference.
